Trying to reinstall the processor with the heat sink still attached is not a good idea--as pins can very easily be damaged.
You will have to pry the processor from the heat sink. Use a small screwdriver, but do it gently--all around the edges. You can also make it a little easier by getting a hair dryer and heat the whole thing up before trying.
Don't worry about damaging it with the hot air. It runs at a higher temp than a hair dryer.

My hp pavilion model g6-2240as when restarting, states that the fan is not working properly and then cuts out in about 15 seconds. I do not know what to do. It has windows 8.1 operating system and the...


This is a common issue with laptops. Quite often, however, the problem is not the fan, but the heatsink that the fan blows the air over to remove heat from the processor. People tend to lay their laptops on their laps, beds, sofas, and carpets when they use them. This sucks massive amounts of dust, hair, lint, etc. into the cooling passages and clogs the heatsink. Many laptops are now made so that the heatsink can be removed for cleaning. If the heatsink is clogged, the fan cannot cool the processor and the processor overheats. This causes the cutting out for processor protection.

Iam using HP Desktop D530 when i open some programmes but processor fan runs so fast and loud 2 gb ram in my pc and hard disk is 20 gb how can i reduce noice of fan ?


To reduce the fan noise, open the PC Case and clean the fan. Also, proper ventilation keeps the system cool and the fan runs at lower speed.

Hope this helps!

I have a HP a1630n thee monitor says video cable connected?.The processor fan runs full speed all the time,thats all it does!


The Processor fan usually runs full speed, when the Processor is sensed to be overheating. BIOS, (BIOS program), determines if the Processor is past it's thermal limit. This is done by sensing the Negative value of a Ground to the Processor. If the negative value is too low, BIOS turns the Processor off. [Thermal Limit: A Processor is a type of I.C. Integrated Circuit. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU Electrons passing through the miniature circuitry within the Processor, make heat as they move. (One Electron actually hits another Electron. This activates the motion of Electrons, that is soon to become Electricity. Electrons hitting each other create Friction. Friction causes heat) A Processor can only run so hot before it burns up. (Literally in some cases. As in....... On Fire) There is a limit set as to how hot the Processor can still function correctly, and what is the maximum safe limit before the Processor's instructions, starting breaking down. This is the Thermal Limit ] As the heat builds up, the Heatsink, and Processor Fan, cool the Processor down. Helps to keep the Processor, well below it's Thermal Limit. [ The Processor's fan can sit on top of the Heatsink, or it can be a front case fan pushing air through a plastic tuned port, to the Heatsink. Your processor fan is sitting on top of a Heatsink. A typical Heatsink/Fan combo, http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3451342&CatId=493 Typical construction of a Heatsink, is a flat plate of metal with tall, thin fins protruding from it. Heat is absorbed by the plate of metal, and the fins absorb the heat from the plate, where it is radiated away. Your Processor fan is sitting on top of a Heatsink, which is sitting on the top of the Processor's case] The top of a Processor's case, and the bottom of a Heatsink, are not perfectly smooth. An in-depth view shows 'Hills, Valleys, and Pits'. These form cavities, or voids, that are filled up with Air. Air is an Insulator, not a Conductor. Thermal paste compound is used to fill these voids, and transfer heat from the top of the Processor's case, to the bottom of the Heatsink. Thermal paste is a Conductor. A typical Processor's thermal limit, is usually pretty warm. Time, after time of heating the Processor up, has also heated the thermal paste. Thermal paste can dry out, and harden due to this. It reduces the thermal properties of the thermal compound, to a useless state. It is an Insulator now, and not a Conductor. Doesn't conduct heat. Age also causes the properties of the thermal paste to break down. I would suggest taking a look at the thermal compound. It's always a good procedure to clean the Processor, and the Heatsink, and install fresh, new thermal paste. Decent thermal paste averages around $6, but a 'Mom and Pop' computer shop may have a one Processor application, for around $2. [Remember to follow Anti-Static Precautions, BEFORE reaching inside your unplugged from power, computer ]

Dear Sir sir i have hp desktiop pc and i have


You need to remove the Heatsink from the CPU and re apply heatsink compound to both the CPU and the heatsink then replace the heatsink onto the CPU. the reason for the overheating and shutdown is that the connection between the heatsink and the CPU has become "Aged" and no longer transfers the heat like it should

How do you remove the processor fan on a Compaq d330 ST PN DC581AV?


The Processor used in the HP Compaq D330 series of desktop computers is an intel Pentium 4.

The older style of Pentium 4 that uses a Socket 478, processor socket.

There were three different styles, of the HP Compaq D330 desktop computers made.

1) Desktop style:
Looks like a 'Pizza Box', and lays flat on the computer desk.

2) Microtower style:
A small tower style computer case

3) Slimtower style:
A small tower style case that is narrow in width, and shorter in height than the Microtower.

Reason I brought this up, is the fan design changes from style to style.

One style uses a fan which attaches to the Heatsink with screws.
(Heatsink is the finned metal unit under the fan, and sits directly on the Processor)

The other style has a plastic baffle that surrounds the fan. (Black in color if memory serves)

(The Baffle is a round plastic part that surrounds the fan blades. It directs the air flow. My term would be - fan shroud, as in used on a car)

Again going by memory, but I believe the baffle is a two part unit. There is a top half, and a bottom half.

Once the Heatsink/Fan Assembly is removed from the Processor socket, I think you can access two screw heads, coming up from the bottom.

Removing the two screws allows the Baffle to be separated, and allows access to the fan.

I believe there is also a tab on the top half of the Baffle, which a U shaped part from the bottom half of the Baffle, locks over the tab.
The U shaped part is a Lock.

(May be two tabs, and two U shaped locks. One on each side)

The U shaped part is gently pried out towards the outside, which allows the tab to slide free.

The two halves could also be glued together.

If your reference is to just clean the fan, after removing the Heatsink/Fan Assembly from the processor socket, I would use Q-tips, and a can of compressed air for computers, to clean it.

When using the can of compressed air I advise using short bursts.
The fan is only designed to spin so fast, and spinning it faster than it was designed for, can lead to premature failure of the fan's bearings.

If your reference is to replace the fan due to the fan's bearings have failed, my advice would be to replace the Heatsink/Fan as a unit.
There are much better models out there than this factory one.

Also accessing an original fan, will lead to buying the complete Fan/Baffle assembly.

1) You may be able to find it on a website like Ebay.
2) It will probably be a pull off of an old computer, and who knows what the lifespan will be?

NOTE*
BEFORE the Heatisnk/Fan Assembly is reinstalled;

The bottom of the Heatsink, and the top of the Processor case must be Thoroughly cleaned!
Also fresh new Thermal Paste must be applied, and correctly.

Thermal paste is around $2 to $4 at a local computer repair shop. It should come in a small tube, and enough for one application.
Should you need advice on how to properly apply thermal paste, let me know in a Comment.

If there is a white thermal pad being used, take it off, throw it away. These cannot be reused, and are junk to begin with.

I use an old plastic credit card to scrape the Heatsink bottom, and the top of the Processor case. Then I use Q-tips dipped in Isopropyl Alcohol to help clean. (Rubbing alcohol)
Takes a few Q-tips.

Also Note*
BEFORE you reach inside your computer, have the computer unplugged from power, AND touch the metal frame of the open computer case.

Your body carries Static electricity, and Static will fry out computer hardware components.
Especially a Processor.
Touch the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static.

If you get up, and walk away, when you return touch the metal frame again.


To Remove the Heatsink/Fan Assembly from the processor socket:

Looking at the processor socket you will note that there are four H shaped brackets.
These are plastic, and are formed into the base of the processor socket.
There is one in each corner.

The H shaped bracket has a slot hole in the middle of the bracket, towards the top.
The Heatsink/Fan Assembly has a tab that lines up with that slot hole.

Four tabs on the Heatsink/Fan Assembly corners, to match the four H shaped brackets.

The top of the H shaped bracket is - Gently pried towards the outside.
Very gently as it's plastic, and is brittle from the heat inside the computer all these years.

The H shaped bracket is just pried out far enough to clear, the tab of the Heatsink/Fan Assembly.

Once two tabs are released, the Heatsink/Fan Assembly can be tilted a little, and lifted up, and out.

This gives you a closer view of that Socket 478 bracket not installed,
